Three of us travelled to Greymouth via the Tranzalpine, we booked online prior and I had read previous reviews where travellers were picked up from the train station. This was true, I emailed them prior to travelling and it was no problem at all. Upon arrival, we rung the owners and they came straight away to pick us up. Very... More

The motel understands weary travellers. After 5 hrs drive, a more than comfortable bed, warmth and friendliness were what we needed. Manager was also very accommodating and helpful. Room has a small spa, and wonderful high powered ceiling heated lamps n the bathroom, which was the most joyful thing for me. You see i was drenched through by a pounding... More

A bit out of town, about a 20 minute walk. Staff very helpful, kitchen facilities were good ( but no egg cups!) Very clean, could be bit noisy. Outside area was kept very nice and well looked after. Would stay again.

Book a room last minute since we decided to shorten our trip at Franz Josef and went earlier to Greymouth for our tomorrow's Alpine train schedule. Booked thru their hassle free website without any difficulties at all and then show up a few hours later only to find that this motel is located near beautiful Dixon Park, KFC, Mc D... More

We had a one night stay here while in Greymouth and we were impressed.. The room was pleasantly furnished and very comfortable. The unit was spotless. It came with complete kitchen facilities, with top quality appliances, and the usual tea, coffee, hot chocolate and coffee plunger. There was a spa bath with the shower over it and heating lights in... More

Our family name is Gable so we found that we just had to stay here while on our visit, the staff in reception were amazing. We arrived much later than we had planned due to road closures, the staff were very accommodating

The facilities were warm, clean and tidy and great value for money, although a bit dated in decor and the hot water run out mid spa, we were still quite happy with the room over all. Centrally located and we couldn't hear any road noise (from the rear unit we were in) which was appreciated. The host was incredibly friendly... More
